NetworkManager dropping connection (affecting both e1000 and ipw2200)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:26 EST
Description of problem: After yum updating to fedora-development last night
(3/5) NetworkManager hasn't kept a stable connection. It wil stay up and
connected for anywhere between 1-15 minutes, then disconnects.
This is affecting both wired (e1000) and wireless (ipw2200) connections.
I'm attaching a snippet of my syslog during which the problem occurred 2-3
times. Please let me know if there's any further info needed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. enable/start NetworkManager
Actual results: connections will drop
Expected results: stable connection

also should note that wpa_supplicant package is latest rawhide (0.4.8-5) and
although it's chkconfig'ed off it does appear to be running in a daemon mode
(when wireless), which makes /sbin/service think it's started:
[dave@flanders ~]$ sudo chkconfig --list | grep wpa
wpa_supplicant 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:off 4:off 5:off 6:off
[dave@flanders ~]$ sudo service wpa_supplicant status
wpa_supplicant (pid 7971) is running...
[dave@flanders ~]$ ps -ef | grep wpa
root 7971 1 0 01:45 ? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant -dd -g
dave 7994 2611 0 01:45 pts/2 00:00:00 grep wpa
...and doing a `service wpa_supplicant stop` will cause the wireless connection
to cease working.
Shortly after reporting this bug I started NetworkManager again but left
NetworkManagerDispatcher stopped (didn't have anything configured for use w/
dispatcher anyways). And since then I haven't encountered the problem.
Is it possible that NetworkManagerDispatcher is actually the cause of this?
problem has not re-appeared ... closing
